Grace re-signs for Charlton
 Women's Football News 28 Dec 2013
 
Grace re-signs for Charlton - 28 Dec 2013 - Women's Football NewsCharlton Athletic are delighted to confirm the re-signing of midfielder Grace Coombs, who returns from a spell at the University of Massachusetts. 
 
Grace rejoined the club before the Christmas break and will be available for the second half of the season, starting on 5th January away to West Ham United. The versatile 23-year-old, who can also play at centre back, is looking forward to getting back out on the field and playing with old friends.
 
On her return to Sparrow's Lane, she said: "It was always going to happen, really. I wasn't ever looking anywhere else. My best friends play for this team, so it just made sense [to come back].
 
"It will be different at first but I am sure I will adjust. I still know the majority of the team so hopefully I know how they play so I can fit in quickly.
 
"There are quite a few key players injured at the moment but I just want to come in and do what I can. The last time I was in the team we won the league so I am hoping that will mean something."
 
After coming through Charlton's centre of excellence, Grace had a season with West Ham before making the move back to the Addicks, where she played 74 first team games in all competitions, scoring six goals. Having been part of the Charlton team that won the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division title in 2010-11, she made the move to America.
 
Grace was an ever present in her final two years with the UMass Minutewomen, co-captaining the side for her senior year in 2013. She racked up three goals and seven assists in 58 appearances in her three years, as she combined playing football with studying.
 
On her time stateside, she added: "I learnt a lot, it was hard but I think it was well worth doing and I would recommend it to people in the future, definitely.
 
"I think it improved everything, even me as a person. It taught me a lot and made me know I could do things I didn't think I could do. It's a different way of life over there.
 
"In pre-season for about two weeks we would train twice a day and then it goes down to once a day and then during the year we would have Monday off, train Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, game Friday and train Saturday and Sunday."
